Title: A Touch of Midnight
Savannah Dupree is halfway across the country from her Louisiana bayou hometown, a freshman studying at Boston University on a full scholarship. But academic excellence is only one of Savannah’s gifts. She possesses something even more remarkable than her quick mind and insatiable curiosity for learning. With a simple touch, Savannah can see an object’s past—a skill that puts her life in danger, when her studies bring her into contact with a centuries-old English sword and the secret hidden within the blade’s history: the vicious murders of twin boys by a group of fanged creatures borne of the worst kind of nightmare.
In all his three hundred years of living as one of the Breed, vampire warrior Gideon never dreamed he’d see the blade again that spilled his young brothers’ lives ages ago on that blood-soaked night in London. Ever since the boys’ deaths, Gideon’s been on a personal quest to rid the world of Rogue vampires, but now he can’t help wondering if the brutal slayings of his only kin was something more sinister—an act perpetrated by an unknown enemy. An enemy who is apparently living in hiding somewhere in Boston. There’s one certain way to prove Gideon’s suspicion, but it will mean using innocent, gifted Savannah to help uncover the full truth—a truth that will shatter everything she knows about herself and the world around her. And with danger closing in from all sides, the passion that ignites between Gideon and Savannah will tempt them to risk their hearts and lives for a love that might just last an eternity…

I’ve wanted to know Savannah and Gideon’s story since I met them in Kiss of Midnight. Adrian has given readers their story with A Touch of Midnight.
A Touch of Midnight takes readers back to 1974. The Order is six members strong and Gideon is part of the fighting although he is very excited about the technological advances he sees coming in the near future. I was giddy right along with him about where the world is going when it comes to computers.
Savannah is away from her Louisiana home for the first time in her life. She’s attending classes at Boston University. She loves the art history classes she is taking. She seldom uses her extrasensory ability of psychometry to help her determine the history of an object but some items are too difficult to resist. Once she sees the past of a sword she’s found during an extra credit assignment she can’t resist the temptation to see more. There are others interested in this sword and that soon brings otherworldly creates she never fathomed right to her apartment door.
This books works as a nice intro into the Midnight Breed world. It’s also a wonderful addition to someone like me who started elsewhere in the series. It answers the questions about a couple who have just always been there in this series.
